It is designed for any healthcare professional, regardless of discipline or status, who may be called upon to resuscitate a newborn baby.

The course concentrates on the importance of temperature control, practical airway management and ventilatory support and topics covered on the course include: History & Physiology; Resuscitation at Birth; Special Cases; Airway Management; Vascular Access; Equipment Familiarisation; and Chest Compressions.
